my little girl Elsie is 14 weeks, she's blowing bubbles, trying to pull herself up to sitting (haha it's so cute, she sounds like she's trying to do a poo), babbles heaps! smiling at anyone who smiles at her, and laughing :-D sooo cute
she also holds her own weight on her legs, has been for weeks and weeks. just starting to experiment with bending them, one at a time

my little boy has been sleeping through since he was 5 weeks and he seems ever so strong for a baby. when my siblings were younger you had to support there head for what seemed like months, my boy Logan-James was supporting his own head at around 2 weeks,he stands up by pulling on things and hes only 3 and a half months old, when he laughs he gets iccups for some strange reason and it seems strange that he doesnt feel like a baby as to seeing my younger siblings and cousins as he is so strong! x

Savannah can not really hold her head up well while on her tummy. she holds her head up well if she is sitting on my lap or when i have her on my shoulder. she smiles and laughs some at us, especially if we sing. she is SO sweet! :)

lol this is like a brag post with all the mums super proud of their wee bubs! i'm no exception! my wee man is 12 weeks today.he's had great neck and leg strength since he was born. he's never really wanted to sit down and has been pushing himself up to his feet almost since he was born! he rolled from tummy to back at around 3 weeks but it was purely by accident! lol. but he has no interest in rolling back again. he loves jumping around in his jolly jumper and he smiles and laughs. he can bat at things on his playgym too but doesn't really reach out for things. he can hold a rattle if you put it in his hand though! he's just found his hands and stares at them in fascination before putting them in his mouth! :)

my little guy is 14 wks and is cooing, babbling, says mama, sits in his bumpo, laughs like a crazy kid and is totally teething! he loves to sleep so he goes for about 6-8 hr stretch at night then back to sleep for a few more hrs after that. it's my 1st tho so i don't know if he's on course or not. he's not rolling over though.

My Troy has had really good neck control since birth. he could hold his head up when held upright. now he can turn his head from side to side when on his stomach and he can push his head off the ground sometimes. He kicks like he wants to crawl and when on my lap he stands up with help. I gave him little lastes of some of my food. "more like licks of my food." and I introduced mashed bananas today. Watered down juice is also something he enjoys. He can hold a rattle and shake it. He often smiles at his silly family. His stuffed doggy and rattles have somehow found their way to his mouth!
My daughter will be 3 months on the 17th and she has always slept threw the night waking once for a bottle we use to have to make her get up to eat she has been holding her head up really good since she was about 2 weeks old she sits up really good in her boppy. She laughs all the time smiles bunches coos all the time blowing bubbles she has found her toys on the bouncer loves playing with them she can stand up if you are holding her hands.She has found her hands and feet she is also starting to teeth! : ) she is just so amazing!

My son is laughing (hysterically at some times to his big brother), eating his hands constantly, smiles when he sees mummy, daddy orhis brother, searching with his eyes for our voices when speaking near him, looks at his toys, holds a rattle, cooing and squealing, can hold his head up really high on his tummy and turn 90 degree and rolls from tummy to back each way and trying back to tummy. Still can't remember for the life of me when babies usually start looking at their hands. I love that fascination they get.

My son is 14 wks his smiles and laughs brighten my day. He can now hold his head up straight. He was holding it up early but to one side. He is grasping objects he reaches out to. He focuses on me and/ or daddy and can track us from across the room. Sometimes he sleeps through the night but lately he's been waking at 3 but I think because he's hitting a growth spurt.

My son is just over 11 wks old. he rolled over first time from belly to back when 5 wks old. He is "talking" all the time. He so wants to laugh but just when you would typically start laughing, he does a little cough instead. He doesn't particularly like belly time anymore. He much prefers standing - his balance is a little lacking so he holds on to my fingers to balance.

Mariah Daylynn is smiling, cooing, has laughed a few times, is reaching out to touch objects and has developed the coordination to suck her thumb whenever she wants. She can support her own weight on her legs for short periods of time and she babbles and lets out gleeful shrieks. She also sleeps through the night in her own crib in her own room from about 10 pm till about 10 am without waking up for feedings. She used to sleep in our room, but has transitioned to her own bed and room for the last couple of weeks.

My wee girl is 9 weeks old and she started sleeping through the night for 8 or 9 hour stretches. That might have something to do with the fact that we have just moved her bassinet into her own bedroom so I am not getting up to every little snort.
She has also just started to lift up her head and shoulders for long stretches during tummy time. She was a very early smiler - she was smiling at 3 weeks, now she also laughs and babbles. She bats things in her play gym, although at this stage I think she is just flailing her arms randomly and she surprises herself when she hits something!
She's really into mobiles right now. We've got one hanging above her bassinet which she totally digs.

He's smiling, cooing--maybe even considered babbling a bit, he just started laughing about a week ago when we tickle him...and yesterday was the first time my hubby just did something funny and made him laugh without any physical contact! It was great!! He is sleeping 9-10 hours through the night....and he's been holding his head up since he was 2 weeks old...but of course now he has much more control...We're working on gaining some upper body strength and hand-eye coordination right now...he just started batting at toys on the bouncer 2 days ago! Oh...and though he doesn't really enjoy it, he can roll over from tummy to back...He rolled from back to tummy once or twice, but he doesn't have that mastered at all! He likes to kick, kick, kick...especially when he's excited, and with a little help, he supports his weight on his legs!
My baby just turned 3 months old. I caught her laughing in her sleep, but she hasnt done it for me while awake yet. She does lots and lots of happy coo sounds and big open mouth smiles. She is starting to put toys in her mouth when I put them in her hand. She cant quite grab on her own yet, she tries but just isnt able to grasp but she can hold things when I help her. She kicks a lot when shes happy. Her neck is good and strong, enough to hold her big head steady.

Hi my daughter is 3 months on the 4th of may. At 2 weeks she had control of holding her head up. At 3 weeks she was holding her weight on her legs. At about 6 weeks she laughed out loud once and now at 12 weeks she is starting to giggle more. She started to coo loud and often at 2 months. Since April 4th she has slept through the night. She can sit in her bumbo and is trying to pull herself up to sit on her own, she doesn't use anything to pull herself but her stomach muscles, she hasn't done it all the way just yet. She at 2 months she could follow smaller objects with her eyes and has smiled in responce since she was 4 weeks old. At 8 weeks she was blowing bubles. She now can hold things and shack them in her hads started that about a week and half ago. I love my little chubby checks more than anything in this world! : )

my 9week old is starting to STAND, usually when he is onmy lap he grabs onto my shirt and holds himself up. usually for around 30seconds or more. first time he did it he was exactly 6weeks old.! he sleeps around 10-11hours a night and about 7hours during the day and has so since 4-5weeks old.
he laughs sortof, but it makes him cough.
he smiles. and follows us with his eyes.
he has been holding his head up since 9days old.

Yes, the first laughs are sooooo sweet! My little guy, Greyson, laughs a lot when we stand him up and hold his arms above his head - he thinks it's hysterical! And he coos and smiles quite a bit. He's such a sweetie pie! :) He can hold his full weight on his legs, just holding onto my fingers for balance, and he can sit up in the bumbo. I'm not sure if this is normal or advanced - my first son was sooo slow to get head control! It seemed like forever before he could sit in the bumbo! He's 9 weeks now. Oh, and he's sleeping for a long time at night, with one 7-8 hour stretch - which is a milestone in my eyes! haha
